When people turn to fictional characters, it’s often because they want an escape. The stories of these people shelter us from the storm of our daily lives; they save us, if only for a little while. But when we really give in, become invested, let ourselves be vulnerable, something changes. We begin to feel that we know them. It’s no longer just an escape, but part of us, something that makes us who we are.

These characters teach us that incredible adversity can be overcome. That people can love each other forever. That life can be an adventure. That magic can be real. And even if these miracles have never happened to us, we begin to go through life believing that, someday, they could. 

If anybody ever tells me that storytelling isn’t important anymore, I’ll show them this post.

OKAY I JUST REALISED

According to the Casebook, Moriarty is born in 1976, and Sherlock in 1981. That’s a five year difference. Carl Powers was 11 years old when he died (well, murdered), and that was in 1989.

THAT MEANS MORIARTY MADE HIS FIRST KILL/STARTED MURDERING PEOPLE SINCE HE WAS 13 YEARS OLD

YOU LITTLE MONSTER

AND SHERLOCK BEGAN HIS DETECTING AND INVESTIGATING AT EIGHT YEARS OLD (“Carl Powers, John. That’s where I began.”)

EIGHT YEARS OLD

CAN YOU IMAGINE A TINY KID SHERLOCK SNOOPING AROUND FINDING CLUES AND TRYING TO FIND EVIDENCE FOR THE MURDER

YOU LITTLE GENIUS

YOU REALLY WERE JUST A KID IT MAKES SENSE WHY THE POLICE DIDN’T LISTEN

NO WONDER MORIARTY’S OBSESSED WITH YOU BECAUSE YOU GUYS GO WAAAAAAAAYYYYYYYY BACK

CHILDHOOD NEMESIS ENEMIES RIVALS WHATEVER

BECAUSE HAVING CHILDHOOD FRIENDS INSTEAD IS WAY TOO ORDINARY ISN’T IT

Reblogging this for the second time because:

BA DUM TSSSHH. 

Not to mention the fact that Carl Powers was eleven years old

I always pictured him as some douchebag high school junior or senior who sort of had it coming

No

He was a fucking sixth grader

He was a giant sixth grader with shoes that big.
